Recently Bond Helicopters have been using Warton since the demise and re-instatement of Blackpool Airport. I don't personally post images but here is a selection that have been flying into Warton recently.

In connection with the 2015 Southport Air show as well as having The Red Arrows based at Warton, we also had The Royal Navy Historic Flight Swordfish based there everyday when the crew returned from the Southport Show the Pilot entertained with a mini display.

On the Swordfish's departure back to Yeovilton we were treated to a five minute low level display with pull ups tight turns, all in all a super show. Below is some interesting facts about the Swordfish.

I think its appropriate that the Vulcan will be the last aircraft I record as a visitor to Warton, unless The Concorde makes a return visit to the skies over Warton (1972)

Vulcan flying from the cockpit pilot Kev Rumens. must be some of the definitive videos.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kuE9A8bOzQ This is the one I've been looking for its the full display from Fairford on the July Saturday 2015

Full credits to Neil Draper for the fantastic photography and film he has produced on the Vulcan.

Over recent months there has been a lot of radar and EW trials involving our based IP Typhoons with Falcon 20s from Cobham they usually come from their Teeside base. Here is a montage of Falcon 20s that have graced Warton's skies https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=cobha ... WzaZSytJgH

A frequent visitor to Warton in 2016 is IPA 2 https://www.eurofighter.com/multimedia/ ... -italy-369
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1q0kwZ7 ... 49.7893744

Checked 14.6.16

http://www.madeinpreston.co.uk/Aviation/jsf.html Hopefully this will be a frequent visitor to Warton + this thread outlines the legend of this particular aircraft and the parts that Salmesbury and Warton have played in its manufacture.

As promised The Blackburn B2 Bi-plane was the first aircraft to take to the skies flying very sedately it flew at least 3 times always off 07 next to fly was the Avro Anson

again off 07 the Avro Anson flew at least three times between 5.0pm & 7.0pm. As I was leaving at 7.0pm to attend the Tornado Lecture at Warton the Swordfish also Off 07.https:

This thread is all about "The Mach Loop" and hopefully when its quiet at Warton some of the guys
from Warton can follow in my footsteps and climb up the Welsh hills.

By way of explanation the addition to the title Warton Aircraft UAVS + Visiting Aircraft + Guide to the Mach Loop Emphasises that
a lot of Warton Test Flying involves the Welsh MTA and flying through the loop, witness IPA 5 ZJ 700 in the Thread
Warton Wanderer.
